What is a Standup bot?

A standup bot is a daily bot (or a reminder bot/scrum bot) that helps organize standup meetings asynchronously. Daily bot updates tasks automatically and considers differences in time zones for remote, distributed teams. It reminds your daily tasks and provides automatic reports and much more.

There are several rules to follow if the team wants to succeed in Standup meetings:

 

1. The right frequency of standup meetings

If teams often have meetings, they can waste a lot of time. On the other hand, if the gap between meetings is significant, it could negatively affect. For instance, the team members could forget about questions they need to discuss, or some blockers could keep them from achieving good results. Moreover, some other factors can influence the closeness of meetings. For example, workload or availability of separate workers.

Here is when Standup Bot can help you.

It has questions that remind you about things you have done, tasks team members worked on, tasks they should do in the future to achieve the sprint goal.

2. Have a leader for a meeting

 There should be a leader to organize a meeting efficiently. It is usually a project manager, a head of the department. Every person should know what to do during and after the meeting. Besides, if some people cannot participate in a meeting for some reason, they can still know what the team discussed and its result. So a leader could be responsible for it or assign a person who can follow all these steps.

 

3. Use a Standup Bot

As you may already know, The standup bot supports the team in most of the questions related to meetings. First of all, it saves time because it automatically organizes meetings, prepares reports, delivers the questions to follow the sprint goal, and more. Moreover, it reduces a team’s hours on meetings from 95/month to 45 h/month.

You can perform the following actions with Orli – the Standup bot for Discord:

  • define tasks
  • estimate tasks duration
  • log tasks actual duration
  • follow up on the completion of your tasks
  • automatically report done tasks in the next day’s Daily Standup in Discord
  • set the Discord Server timezone
  • set individual user timezone
  • set Daily bot participants,
  • change daily questions and their icons
  • set the channel to report your Daily
  • automatic formatting of Daily reports
  • automatic task updates in Orli Task List and Jira, etc

 

4. The standup meeting should take place at the same hour every single time.

 First of all, it helps the team to prepare in advance and plan their workflow. Secondly, it becomes a habit for a team to meet on the same day/time. It makes meetings more productive and organized.

 In case you have a distributed team that works in different time zones, use Standup Bot. It considers time zone differences and runs meetings automatically.

5. Define clear meeting goals

It is good to keep some structure for standup meetings, to have some agenda and a range of questions to discuss.

Standup Bot will help with the questions to define objectives.

 

6. Let team members choose

The team members could have different ways to join the meeting. Some of them could work remotely, so it is better to allow them to join online. Others can participate in person. 

Standup Bot helps to hold the standup meeting online using Discord.

 

7. Don’t waste your time on meaningless discussions

Follow main goals and ideas to discuss. It is easy to involve unrelated topics in conversations and forget about the time and other requirements for effective standup meetings. Just Keep the focus!

 

8. Make it short

If the Standup meeting takes more than 15 minutes, it could lead to a waste of time. Every speaker should talk for a minute, no more. Teams can discuss questions that appear later, next time, or after the meeting.
